Tennis and badminton are popular but earth football and rugby are considered common. Cricket, where the game can take days and still end in a draw, is hugely admired on the grounds it takes genius to come up with a sport like that! Some of the larger villages are beginning to play cricket. It keeps the sprites out of trouble, especially if you have a bigger more powerful species acting as umpire so nobody is tempted to use the bat on anything other than the ball.
Magic is used to keep playing fields level and free from any creatures that tend to damage lawns. In the Kingdom this ranges from moles to griffins to furry monsters to massive dragons. On earth it is mainly just moles that cause problems! The Queen, Eileen and Jenny don’t play sports but Hanastrew and the fairy squad are beginning to do so, recognizing that keeping fit will help them with their magical duties. The squad tend to focus on racing - but in the air.
